The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
